Migrating account data with an expired subscription (expired, invalid)

Hello.

Can an administrator use ODM to migrate data from an expired (expired, invalid) account?
(Administrator assumes that subscription is valid)

The Microsoft site states that administrators can access the data for 90 days after being disabled.

  • Hello  ,

    On Demand Migration (ODM) does require that an account has a be valid and have valid Office 365 licenses for any data type that needs to be migrated. Although an administrator may be able to login to the source tenant and view the data, ODM depends on APIs and access that require licenses for migration purposes.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions or need any additional clarification.

  • Hello Trevor-san,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Does it mean that you cannot migrate with the following license status?

    Source Tenant   Target Tenant
    Name 365 License Migration Target Name 365 License
    ODM(for ODM Account) valid   ODM(for ODM Account) valid
    user1 invalid --> user1 valid
    user2 invalid --> user2 valid
    user3 invalid --> user3 valid
    *Only migrate email and OneDrive data.

    Best Regarts.

  • Hello  ,

    Correct, On Demand Migration (ODM) will be unable the users in your example until they have valid Microsoft 365 licenses in the source tenant.
